The North Lake Tahoe Express Shuttle also serves Incline Village from the Reno Tahoe International Airport.

You can also pick up your rentals for the next day starting at 3:00 pm.
How much snow are you going to have on a certain day?
It's hard to predict the weather more than 3-4 days in advance and even then it could change.
Do you have lodging at the resort?
Diamond Peak doesn't have its own lodging but since we are located in the town of Incline Village we offer various lodging options for every budget—from 5 star resorts to quaint cabins.

Terrain & Abilities
I am a beginner, but my husband is advanced. Is the terrain good for both of us?
Diamond Peak offers gentle beginner slopes that are perfect if you are just getting into the sport. Our Ski & Snowboard School offers private as well as group lessons to give you a solid foundation or help you improve. Diamond Peak's more advanced terrain offers challenging trails, tree skiing, open bowls and glades for the more advanced customers. Since all runs funnel down at the Base Area, you can all have fun separately and meet at the end of the day or at lunch without fear of getting lost. This layout makes Diamond Peak the perfect place for people with varying abilities.
